AWESOME guitar coming from Jerry in Mississippi esp. at the end....obvi. love so many roads; the start of an evolution here on this song brings rating way up.

Subject: a start of something beautiful......
i admit,the show on a whole is not the ball of energetic love that bounced from the band to us and back again..as it was at many other venues on this evening...BUT..a little tune,sandwiched between"Wang Dang"and"Queen Jane"became a monster ballad,that no one could ever of imagined."So many Roads"took our breathe away from the time Jerry introduced it to the setlist.....For that reason alone,i give this night 5*,for it was the night that 1000 tears fell,because of one song.And 1000`s more each night after......i love when Jerry "thought he heard blackbird`s singing.".....We miss you Jerry...love you!

This show makes me think again about the decline. It's not possible to deny that this isn't the same band that existed just two years back. There are mini-highlights but no 10-minute stretch depicts what the band is capable of. Sound is OK for this era.

Subject: yeah...
...bobby and vince (always vince) are too high in the mix. also don't like booby's tone during this period: check out queen jane; bobby sounds like a kid trying to learn a whitesnake tune or something.

worth the listen for so many roads.

I have to fully agree with the review added by 'Enlightened Deadhead'.

I travelled with several friends from the Seattle area to this show, and despite the comments left by live archive aficionados here in reviews section, this was one of the many and more fun nights I ever spent with the band and Deadheads at large.

This is a 'big time' Grateful Dead rock and roll show with the Bertha>Promised Land opener, plus One More Saturday Night to kickoff the second set. Fun, fun, fun night, never to be forgotten.

Then throw in that the band played a couple of new tunes that they'd never tried live before? Enough said. I highly recommend a listen to this show. Too bad the U.S. Blues encore is missing, that's my only reason for 4 stars, rather than 5.

Subject: not bad!!!
the bertha>promised grooves along nicely..... jerry sounds real good for 92.... his guitar is a little too low in the mix.... vince's keys, and bobby's guitar overpower jerry...... but it's not bad.... worth the stream..

Drove from a few states away to see this show as a college student and it flipped my lid. It is funny how deadheads became so demanding by becoming addicted to the tunes rather than appreciating them for what they are/were. This was a really fun night and in case you serious computer drones forget, the band was about having fun, enjoying life. Take your tapes on a long drive or listen to drums and space while looking at the stars for gawdsake. Even this simple show from 92 will blow your socks off if you let it! Great Show.

Subject: all over the place
the levels don't get fixed until about wang dang doodle, and then the band takes over and pretty much butchers that tune. Maybe it's me but they don't seem to be playing the same song. Checked this out based on 4 star reviews, but don't see it. Off to the copps cols show that everyone is raving about
Reviewer: dmilks - - February 4, 2005
Subject: Turn down Bobby!
Bobby's guitar and Vince's Keys are cranked on this recording and Phil is almost non-existent...Jerry's guitar slowly gets turned up throughout the Bertha but never sounds quite loud enough....Personally I wouldn't call the Bertha>Promised "raging", but vocally for '92 Jerry does sound darn good!

Reviewer: dirty jev-o - - December 9, 2004
Subject: try another....
this show is a good performance that was recorded with a bit of hiss compared to 3-20-92.....now THAT is a clean recording!!! this is just real hissy
Reviewer: sframe - - December 1, 2004
Subject: underrated
This show is perhaps the most underrated of 1992. A raging Bertha>Promised 1st set opener. The very tight and unusual Saturday Night>1/2 Step 2nd set opener and a great Estimated jam into drums with Phil hinting at Pink Floyd's "One of these Days." The rest of the show is standard in terms of setlist, but very tight - surprisingly so for the first show of the year. This is a good recording, but if you can find one, try the AUD.
